Start by asking: Who of here likes the poems and poetry? Who has written a poem to someone special like Mom, Dad or the teacher? (Wait for their participation). Today we are going to know that in the Bible book that are many poems. Let’s listen?
KNOWING THE PROVERBS BOOK
WE ALREADY learn about the importance of the Bible, that is the Word of God, and know that it is a book consisting of several other books, among of them there is the book called Proverbs.
Proverbs is a book of poems composed of 31 chapters, so it's known as poetic. Big part of this book was written by Solomon, the youngest son of King David, but a man who called Agur wrote the penultimate chapter and the last was written by King Lemuel.
Beyond the poems in the book there are parables and stories that teach about how to live well, family, friendship, obedience, etc. There is why the importance of learning more about this biblical book.
Before David died, he chose his son Solomon to reign in his place and showed him how he should behave. So, when his father died, Solomon was anointed king in his place and kingdom Israel.
After becoming king, Solomon went to a place very high called Gibeon to offer a thousand sacrifices to God, and with that attitude, he showed his great love towards God. At night, Solomon was sleeping at his house and received a great response from God, who gave him the right to choose what he wants. Kids, he made a very special request. Solomon asked God for wisdom, and he wanted to be a good king for those who needed God's guidance. God was pleased with Solomon's request, despite the wisdom, also gave him great wealth. Solomon was very wealthy and wise.
For having the wisdom of God, Solomon was able to write most of the book Proverbs, which brings great tips for our lives. Buddies, we must ask for God wisdom so that we can make things right, because then we will be happy in what we do.
By now, you'll need paper and lollipops (enough for whole class). Write each sentence down on a sheet and numbers from 1 to 5 behind the sheet:
• Place your hand on the head
• Jumping with one foot
• Give a hug to the next friend
• Sit in the chair
Place the papers on the table with the phrase turned down and the number up. Start by saying: "Who wants a lollipop? (Show the bag of lollipops.) To win you must follow the guidelines that are in these papers, if you obey them correctly you’ll be rewarded. Tell the kids to pick a number, watch the children to obey the guidelines.
Continue until all papers are picked.
Then say: For you to obey the directions I read now, it was necessary to pay close attention ... Isn’t that right? In Proverbs we also find guidelines that help us to live according to God's will, therefore, receive the promised blessings. Educator, distribute lollipops and memorize the verse of the week with the class and then ask the children: Do you tend to follow the guidance and teachings of your parents?
Would you be hurt for not obeying your parents? Little friends, do you think it is important to learn about the Word of God?
Educator, choose three children to each question, let them express themselves, but check the time to not fall behind other stages of the class.
